Most of us know a little of the physical side of PD but it is the non-motor symptoms that can have the most profound affect. I look at myself today and I am very different. Some small tasks have become overwhelming, and indecisiveness has set in. This wasn’t the old me but it is the new me. I have to adapt and more importantly my partner has to adapt with me. We are learning that being flexible and remaining balanced is the best approach. So when your dishwasher turns into a monster and your bedroom looks like the clothes collection point at Oxfam, you can remain good humoured! It’s not the end of the world!
